On Saturday afternoon, Borussia Dortmund captain Mats Hummels was in action at Signal Iduna Park for the first time since announcing his desire to join Bayern Munich.

It was confirmed that the German World Cup winner plans on joining Bayern in a statement on BVB’s official website earlier this week.

Hummels must have expected the reaction from the scorned Dortmund fans wouldn’t be pretty before and during the match against Wolfsburg. He could hardly blame them either, could he? (Scroll down this page to watch how the BVB fans reacted).

Tuchel happy for Hummels to remain club captain

Despite the announcement that Hummels wants to join Dortmund’s fierce Bundesliga rivals - just like Robert Lewandowski and Mario Gotze before him - BVB head coach Thomas Tuchel told reporters on Friday that he was happy for the unsettled centre-back to remain the club’s captain.

"I am glad Hummels' intentions are out in the open now. In sporting terms it is a disappointment," Tuchel was quoted as saying by Goal.

"We have to accept there is a category of clubs above us and Bayern are among them. We will continue to try to play in such a way that the advantage such clubs have over us is not obvious.

"For tomorrow and the rest of the season Mats remains part of our team. He is still the captain, that's why I see it somewhat calmly.

"Nobody has their heads down because of Mats' decision. Nobody should take it personally.

"We still have to wait and see if the transfer will actually take place."
